Permit Internet Traffic on port 443


Permit Internet Traffic on port 443


I have  GS716Tv3 ProSafe 16-port Gigabit Ethernet Smart Switch behind my main router. Switch is connected to webserver. I also have my own DDNS and port forwarding rules setup on my main router.


Within internal network (using computer connected to switch), I am able to access webserver over port 443.


However, if I try to access my webserver over the internet, its not getting connected. If I move webserver from switch to main router directly, its working. This makes me sure, that switch is blocking HTTPs over TCP. 


I searched in GUI, but couldn't find any option to unblock it. Could some one guide me, on how to unblock this communication. Also, can I see this blockage in some log file. 


Many thanks in advance.

Hard to imagine a switch in a default config, no routing, no ACL, no other access limitations should cause such an issue.

What is the current firmware version of the GS716Tv3?


Is the GS716Tv3 directly connected to the main router? 


Is your main router a NETGEAR device?  If yes, what is the model of it?
